The Happy Birthday Thread

Recommended Posts

Whenever you see her, you like to sit with her and have a talk. She is the kind of person you admire, the way she talks, and the topics she discusses. She makes you convenient, and never talks about nonsense topics.

Edit: I'm actually checkin out graphic novels if anyone has suggestions..

 

I'm assuming that you have already read all the Sin City books by Frank Miller.

Scott McCloud’s Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art reads like a history textbook in comic form, but it's super interesting and will give you tons of ideas on what to read.

Look for Art Spiegelman stuff. Maus is good.

Anything by Will Eisner will also be great. Contract with God immediately comes to mind. (Although there is a fair amount of nudity, so nsfw)

Understanding comics is a great choice and I often forget it, it's one of the main reasons I started taking graphic narrative art seriously. Don't know what your tastes lie, but a couple non-superheroy stuff I'd recommend is Jimmy Corrigan Smartest kid on earth. Anything by Joe Sacco. He's a "comic journalist" reporting on war zones around the world in comic form, it's really amazing.

IF you want some intelligent spins on the super hero genre, Besides the Watchmen (obviously), I'd say Top Ten and Promethea ( both by Alan Moore), Authority, Powers and The Xforce/Xtatic run by Allred and Milligan.

I recently used Blankets to impress some 20-something waitresses.

Yes, teenage girls and 20-something waitresses are basically in the same romance quadrant.
